'She should not play with me, I have things to play with her': Pahlaj Nihalani hits back at Kangana Ranaut
Bollywood actress Kangana Ranaut recently revealed in an interview that she was once asked to dress in just a robe for a photoshoot for a Pahlaj Nihalani film. The film producer has now responded to the allegations.
As per reports, Nihalani told the media, “I had spent one-and-a-half crore on that picture advertisement and shot for three songs. She did the reading post the photoshoot, but with my advertisement and the poster she got Mahesh Bhatt’s film (Gangster) and backed out of my film as she requested me to let her do Gangster as we were under a three-movie deal. She should not play with me, otherwise, I have a lot of things to play with her.”
Talking further about the film, he said, “It was a youth film; she was married in that movie. I had approached Amitabh Bachchan for that role. It was on the lines of Cheeni Kum. I gave the narration to Amitji too; he pulled out due to him already doing something similar. It was never a porn film and neither am I interested in those kinds of movies,” he said.
Kangana, in her interview, was quoted saying, “Pahlaj Nihalani had offered me a film called I Love You Boss. They had a photo shoot where they gave me a robe to wear, and no undergarments. So I just had a satin robe for a show-girl pose, from which I had to stick my leg out, coming out of darkness. They should at least have given some tapes. I was supposed to play a young girl lusting after her middle-aged boss. So it was a soft-porn sort of character. And I had this epiphany that I can’t do this. I felt like this is exactly what my parents were talking about. I actually went through the photo shoot, but then I disappeared. I changed my number.”
Kangana is currently working on her upcoming film, Mental Hai Kya in which she will be acting alongside Rajkummar Rao.
